Wow, my last update was August 5th? I don't really know why I'm not writing much. I guess I just don't seem to have much to say these days. I want to write more. I just don't know what to say. I'll work on it!
Anyway, everything is mostly going well. I've been having some low pains, but, the doctors aren't concerned. They feel it's just her putting pressure down there. Speaking of my little girl, she is definitely making herself known more and more every day. I haven't yet felt her from the outside (although the doctor did this week!), but, I'm feeling her thuds more and more on the inside! She's very happy after I eat! I can't imagine I'll ever tire of this feeling!!!
I've now been tracking my blood pressure 4 times a day for over 2 weeks and it's been good so far.
I'm now 23 weeks and had an OB appointment on Monday. I still feel really small, but, the OB said I'm measuring in the range of 22-23 weeks, so, all is fine. Her heart rate is great and I'm still 12 pounds down from my pre-pregnancy weight.
Although it's a little earlier than normal, for various reasons, they did a 1 hour glucose test this week and, well, I failed. The normal range is 65-130 and mine came in at 151. The nurse said this is low in the failure range, but, it doesn't really matter if it's low - I still have to do the dreaded 3 hour glucose test next week.
Honestly, I'm not worried about it. It is what it is, and, hopefully, like many other women who failed the 1 hour, I'll pass the 3 hour!
Oh, and we found and ordered nursery furniture this past weekend! We won't have it delivered and set-up until after she's born, but, just knowing there will be a crib in this house has me all sorts of giddy! More in my next post!!
Hope everyone is doing well!!
